FIFA 15 Editions

 

Q: How many editions there are for FIFA 15 ?
A: This year, there are only two editions for FIFA 15: the standard one and the Ultimate Team Edition (known in previous years as ‘Ultimate Edition’).

Q: What is the difference between the Standard (pre-order) and Ultimate Team edition ?
A: You can compare the two with the help of the following table which outlines the differences between both editions:

OffersStandard Ed.Ultimate Team Ed.
FUT Gold Packs1540
adidas® All-Star TeamYesYes
Messi FUT Loan PlayerNoYes
adidas® Predator Boot BundleNoYes
Historic KitNoYes
Goal CelebrationsNoYes


 

Q: What is the FUT Gold Packs offer ?
A: It is a code for one gold pack entitlement each week for use in FIFA Ultimate Team mode for a total of consecutive 15 consecutive weeks (Standard Edition with pre-orders) or 40 consecutive weeks (Ultimate Team Edition).

Q: When do FUT Gold Packs codes have to be redeemed by ?
A: The codes must be redeemed by October 6th, 2014 to receive all gold packs included in this offer. Late code redemption will result in forfeiture of previous weeks’ gold pack entitlement. Failure to download and/or use the gold pack in any given week will result in forfeiture of that week’s gold pack offering. Each gold pack weekly offer is valid for 7 days and must be redeemed within that time period. The code to redeem the gold packs codes expires January 26th, 2015 (Standard Edition) or July 20th, 2015 (Ultimate Team Edition).

Q: What is included inside each gold pack ?
A: The packs included in this offer are the regular gold packs. Each one contains a mix of 12 items, including players and consumables, at least 10 Gold with 1 rare. Usually, the price of these packs are 5,000 coins or 100 FIFA Points.

Q: Besides FUT Gold packs, what are the other offers ?
A: Here are the five other offers:

    Adidas® All-Star Team
    It is one of the teams in the Rest of the World section. It gives the chance to hit the pitch with an elite team of the brand’s top players, including cover star Leo Messi. However, it cannot be used it in Ultimate Team mode.

    Messi FUT Loan Player
    This year, it is possible to unlock players on loan from the EA Sports Football Club Catalogue using football club credits. However, the loan of Lionel Messi for five matches is exclusive for players who buy the Ultimate Team edition.

    Adidas® Predator Boot Bundle
    One of the world’s top sports brands’ boots are available for free. It includes five pairs of boots from the Predator line.

    Historic Kit
    Historic Kits from classic teams in football history can be instantly unlocked to be used in FIFA 15 and FIFA 15 Ultimate Team.

    Goal Celebrations
    Three exclusive new celebrations pulled from real life: Kiss the Wrist, Stand Tall and Flag Kick.

Q: When do these other codes have to be redeemed ?
A: These additional codes have to be redeemed from EA Sports Football Club Catalogue before September 26th, 2015.

Q: How much more do I pay for the Ultimate Team Edition ?
A: It depends on the stores. Check your local store for prices or take a look to the stores and prices chapter, please.

Q: Do I need to buy the Ultimate Team edition in order to play this game mode ?
A: No. Ultimate Team mode is available in every editions.

Q: Which edition should I buy ?
A: The main difference between these two editions are the gold packs. The Ultimate Team Edition also brings another offers but, in our opinion, they are not worth it. Besides that, the official retail stores also offers one of these EASFC items in the Standard Edition.
If you usually do not play Ultimate Team, you should choose the standard edition and save some money. Many will say to you that you should choose the Ultimate Edition, but we have a different opinion. First of all, the standard edition brings 15 FUT 15 packs, which means that the difference between both editions is not 40 packs but only 25. We know that these gold packs are cheaper than if you buy them on the store but there is something you should not forget: you only get one gold pack per week, for 40 weeks. This is a huge disadvantage since you need those packs as soon as possible to build your dream team. The market depreciates over the time, so when you redeem your last pack you probably no longer need it. We also know that many gamers love to own a FIFA 15 cover and DVD with “Ultimate Edition” printed in, but the extra cost is too much money for it.

Current-Gen or Next-Gen Consoles

 

Q: What are the main differences between FIFA 15 for current-gen and FIFA 15 for next-gen consoles ?
A: There are two big differences: the game play and the price.
The EA Sports Ignite game engine is used for next-gen consoles and delivers a new level of innovation, further blurring the line between the real-world and the virtual: players think, move and behave like real athletes, with environments as dynamic and ever-changing as real-world stadiums.
FIFA 15 for next-gen consoles is usually five pounds more expensive.

Q: Which platforms use the Ignite game engine ?
A: Playstation 4, XBox One and PC. It will debut on Windows PC with FIFA 15.

Q: Which are the recommended specifications and minimum required specifications for PC users ?

Guide to Buy FIFA 15 - Prices, Stores, Editions & More

 

Q: Which platform should I buy FIFA 15 for ?
A: FIFA 15 for next-gen consoles will be a better game but you should pay attention to the fact that if you are planning to buy a PS4 or XBox One only to play FIFA, it will probably cost you more than 450 pounds. It is not worth it. Buy the FIFA for the platform you have. Keep in mind that, between PC and next-gen consoles, our suggestion goes to PS4 and XBox because there are too man cheaters on PC.

Q: Should I pre-order FIFA 15 ?
A: If you really plan to buy the game, you should pre-order it. You will get 15 FUT gold packs for free, which is better than nothing. However, if you don’t plan to play it all the time, buying it later on, especially at Christmas, may be cheaper as game prices can drop around this time.

 
 
 
 

 

Stores and Prices

 

Q: Where can I buy FIFA 15 ?
A: FIFA 15 is sold in thousands of stores all over the world. However, we suggest you to buy it from an official retail store because they usually have small incentives for you.

Q: How can I know which ones are the official retail stores ?
A: Gamers from UK may choose between Amazon, Game and Shopto. Gamers from USA may choose between Amazon, Gamestop, BestBuy and Target. PC version is also available for both through the Origin store.

Q: Where should I buy FIFA 15 for my console ?
A: If you live in UK or Republic of Ireland, you have two good options. Game has more offers but our suggestion is Amazon because it is cheaper and have an amazing customer service. You can check the prices in the following table.
If you live in USA, you should know that the stores are asking the same price for FIFA 15: $59,99 (Standard Edition) and $69,99 (Ultimate Team Edition). In North America, the FIFA 15 price is the same for current-gen and next-gen consoles. In our opinion, you should wait a few weeks more because this stores usually make special discounts.

Q: Is it possible to download FIFA 15 through my console ?
A: Sure. You just need to go to PSN store or XBox Marketplace and buy the game. After the payment you will be able to download it and play.

Q: Should I buy FIFA 15 directly from the console or from a retail store ?
A: Through the console you will not get all the offers, it is usually more expensive and you will have to download a huge file. A retail store is still our suggestion.

Q: Where should I buy FIFA 15 for my PC ?
A: Amazon is the right choice if you want to pre-order the disc version. However, if you prefer the download version, you may save a few pounds buying in Origin. It is easier, because you don’t have to wait by the download code that will be emailed to you near release date, and it is the only option available to get the Ultimate Team edition. If for any reason you bought the Standard edition and want those extra gold packs, you may be able to buy an Ultimate Edition upgrade at Origin (not announced yet).

Q: If I buy the download version of FIFA 15 for PC in a retail store, do I still need to have an active Origin account to install it ?
A: Yes. The download version is very popular. You just need to buy it, open the download link, download and install on your PC. No matter where you buy it from, you will always need an active Origin account to do it.

Q: How do I buy FIFA 15 ?
A: Now, that you probably know where you want to buy your FIFA 15, it’s time to do it. Just go to the store you have chosen and place the order.
If you want to buy from Amazon, the best option in our opinion, do it through the following banners. You will have the same prices and offers but you will be helping us to improve our website.

  1. I’m living in Iraq ( middle East ) region, I want buy fifa 15 activation code ( fifa 15 origin CD-key Region Global ) my Question:
    1- Can I play by it online.
    2- Buy coins without any problem ( because the difference between buy and play regions ).
    3- Can active this code on my Origin account without any problem in future.

  2. Hello there,

    I was wondering if it is possible to play online with a used copy of FIFA’15 for xbox360? Or will playing the game be restricted to offline modes?

    Greetings!

  3. Are there any differences between the us and uk versions in the game. I am a huge premier league fan , and i do not want to be missing some vital features might be present in the uk versions. Also , for the us version , how many commentary languages are you allowed

  4. my psn account is Mauritius, and I live n Mauritius, how to know which version (region) I am? (so that i know when i buy fifa 16 later )
    I cannot buy fifa points because of this problem. My fifa 15 on ps3 has messi and vidal on it, i understand it is not the same region, but is there anyway for me to buy fifa points without changing account because I don’t want to lose the XP and FCC

  5. I was wondering, if I buy the ultimate edition now, do I still get the 40 packs over 40 weeks or was that deal only available through preorder?

  6. Hi, i bought fifa 15 UT edition on psn store. I did not receve any packs, messi or other stuff!? Help please. Sorry for my bad engl.

    • Wait until Monday to see if you don’t get any pack.

      If your Messi loan player has not appeared, try these steps:
      Restart your console and re-connect to the FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) servers.
      Play two to three games of Ultimate Team
      Your Messi loan player should now appear in the New Items section.

  7. It is an official store, they advertised the game with the packs an stuff, i also got the “limited edition” scarf, my copy is xbox 360 i dont know if thats why i didnt get the code, anyway ill go today to the store and see what can i do, thank you

  8. I jus got standar versión of FiFa 15, pre order but inside the box there are not any code or something that says how will i redemm my 15 golf packs should i go to the store who sold it to me?

  9. Any idea if I can stack codes? I found a retailer selling 15 FUT Gold Pack codes separately, could I buy 2 of these, and use these along with the code included with standard edition and get 3 gold packs per week?

    Thanks

  10. Hi,

    I haved claim the code but i dont see any free pack at my store?
    What should i do?
    The card said redeem first than download, but my case i download first than redeem.
    Btw is ps4.

    Thanks

  11. Do you know when 15 will be available on PS3 in the PSN store. Been searching since last night at midnight AND CANT FIND IT

  12. Hi, i was wondering if you could tell me how much fifa points cost on fut 15 and wheather its cheaper to buy them on fut 14 and then transfer them across when the game comes out.

    Cheers

  13. had a couple questions:

    1) Never played ultimate team, so you use players that you draw from these packs and use them to create a sort of fantasy team I guess, you then take this team and play vs others online? this only way to play this mode is online then? so I assume I will need playstation plus (we require it to play games online for PS4) to even play this mode? is that right? do i get starter players? How do i assemble 11 players right off the bat?

    2) Gamestop right now is having the celebration included in the standard edition for their preorder in the link below, but I cant find anywhere the mention of the all star team for the standard edition, are you sure the standard gets the all star team?

    http://www.gamestop.com/ps4/games/fifa-15/115355#bonusFeatures

  14. I had a question about pre-ordering packs offer and tried to find an answer for it but I didn’t find and I decided to ask it here since you guys are really experienced in Fifa, so here is my question:
    Me and my brother are playing Fifa on the same console (PS4) and we pre-ordered Fifa 15 UT edition from the console (the US version) will we both get the 40 gold packs or only the account who pre-ordered the game? I hope you have an answer for that and thanks.

  15. I have a PS4 that I bought in Asia(Region 3) with an asian PSN Account. I recently moved to Europe which is Region 2. I would like to know whether I will be able to play Ultimate Team or anything online if I decide to buy FIFA 15 here in Europe. Will I have any issues?

  16. Whats the difference inside the fifa between the 2 editions? do i have to only pre order the ultimate team edition to have access to the 40 packs? for how many users csn i have the 40 packs?

  17. I live in the US and I wanted to ask if I will be playing the ultimate team, should I pre-order it or wait?
    Oh, and I have PS4..

  18. hi rodrigo
    im planning to pre order fifa 15 on psn before the web app releases. after the release of web app would i be able to buy fifa points on psn to open packs as the first totw is released .

  19. thank you rodrigo .. sorry but i have more questions:

    1) can i play friendly matches with my friend how has a different CD region ?
    2) is it true that you will get free packs in the start in FUT15 ? if yes should i make new accounts now or it’s too late ?
    3) im planning to buy fifa points in the start of FUT15 to open so many pack to get the perfect .. is it a good move ? and should i sell everything for a very high price or i should wait for 1 or 2 weeks ?
    4) i heard that there is something called the happy hours to open packs .. is that true ? and when is it ?
    5) last question .. its about the packs .. should open only the promo packs / weekly packs (15k and over) ? because in fifa14 i opened over 50 packs (7.5k) and i didnt get any super card or player !!

    • 1. Yepp you can play online against everyone, I played agains people from US or Brazil and live in Germany
      2. Usually you would have to make the accounts around at least a month before in order to get more bonus
      3. We will publish some guides around the start of FUT, check the website regulary
      4. EA annouces that usually over their twitter or facebook channel, during the “happy hour” there is a higher chance to draw inform cards etc. – I never had luck with it
      5. Packs are packs, you can open as many as you like, it’s like a lottery. I’d avise you to open packs in the beginning until you have one or two teams to play with and then learn the art of trading.
      Its much easier to trade to the desired player(s) then to wait for pack luck to draw them.

    • Hody already said everything. However I want to remember again that you should visit our website regulary. We will publish very soon a few guides that we answer to your questions in deep.
      About packs you can also take a look here.

  20. Hi, so I live in the US and want to buy the Ultimate Team Edition but without preordering it. Is it possible to buy that version in stores when the game comes out or is the offer only available through preorder?

  21. im thinking of buying the region 1 version USA for “PS4” because i might get PSN cards from freemyapps and i think i can only redeem these cards if the game was on the US version and my PSN account was on the US store.

    BUT !! i live in the middle east and most people here buy the region 2 version .. so do you think that there will be any issues if i did that ?!

  22. Thanks for this detailed, in-depth article Mr Lopes. Although I might pass on this. I haven’t got a PS4 yet neither have I tried my hands on FIFA 14 on new-gen consoles all because of my impression of the game on PS3. Does it feel any different on PS4/XB1? Should I get FIFA 15 on, say PS4?

  23. Hi are u sure that u get 15 gold packs if u pre order i was about to but i wanted to c if the ut edition was worth it and when i almost pre ordered on amazon it said nothing about that and i never read about that from anywhere else

  24. Hi,
    I’m an ios fifa14 player.
    My question is.. if I buy fifa15, can I transfer my coins and squads from fifa14?
    Provided of course fifa15 is available on ios platform.
    Thanks for your help.
    Topgun.
